We're bringing you lots of ideas for super tasty, super quick meals you can whip up in no time while you're staying at home. Good nutrition is key to staying well, but when your regular routine is completely upside down, regular mealtimes also suffers.

Lunch really should be the most substantial meal of the day. This is when your digestive fire is at its strongest. A substantial lunch also prevents that afternoon search for sweet snacks.

I'm a huge fan of soups and one-pot meals. This soup took 10mins to prepare in the morning. It simmered away nicely in the slow cooker and by lunchtime it was ready to dish up.

Cannellini bean soup served with: toasted sourdough (rubbed with a fresh garlic clove and drizzled with olive oil). Add any other accompaniments.

Here I've added fresh chopped parsley (any other fresh herbs would be great) and a little harissa. Sprouted mung beans and fenugreek seeds on the side, then mixed through the soup.
